It's good news if you have a BT Business phone line, as 1571 is free.
If a caller is trying to get through and the line is busy or un answered for a set number of rings, their call is forwarded to a mail box where they can leave a message. The 1571 Message Waiting indicator flashes to alert you to the waiting message.
To access your messages:
- Press 1571. Your call is put through to the mailbox and your message played back to you via the handset earpiece.
- Replace the handset to end the call.
After a few seconds the 1571 light will stop flashing.
Note: To use BT Answer 1571 you must be a subscriber to an equivalent answering service from your network provider.
